This is a unique opportunity open to all pre-medical students to be mentored by faculty, residents, interns, and medical students in the nationally recognized UC Davis Health System Department of Surgery. This program is open to ALL pre-medical students regardless of year, academic standing, or academic institution. If you are interested in a career in medicine you are eligible to apply! All undergraduate, graduate, and post-baccalaureate students from all institutions planning on applying to medical school are eligible. This includes community college, CSU, UC, private university, and graduating high school students who are at least 17 years old.
Setting: The site for the program is the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, CA. This 650-bed hospital is the major teaching affiliate for the UC Davis School of Medicine. The Hospital serves an area of tremendous diversity in both cultural and socioeconomic background. It is a Level 1 Trauma Center, and home to the only burn center, children’s hospital, and transplant center in Northern California. Furthermore, it is the only institution of its kind in Northern California. It is one of the five busiest Trauma Centers in the country and has been featured in multiple television programs. Their focus of service to those most in need underpins the teaching activities in this setting.
The Department of Surgery consists of the following surgical subspecialties:
Details: This is not a volunteering or shadowing program. This is a mentorship where you will be interacting with multiple physicians in the Department of Surgery. You will be working directly with physicians every step of the way, from seeing patients in the intensive care unit, to pre-operative, post-operative, bedside, trauma bay, operating rooms, clinics, conferences, journal clubs and rounds. You will experience the duties physicians perform on a daily basis. You will be part of the team and regarded as such. This program is under the supervision and guidelines set forth by the Chairman of Surgery at the UC Davis Health System.
This is an extraordinarily unique opportunity. Maturity, attentiveness, and being able to follow directions are imperative. This is a fast-paced environment where life and death are on the line every second of the day. Professionalism and maturity are expected. The surgeons voluntarily participating in this program are enthusiastic about having pre-med interns since they were once pre-medical students. Their goal is to give you the best learning experience possible. So please be respectful of them at all times. Additionally, we ask that you remain flexible and follow their instructions.
